Christian Education: Core Classes

Christian Education: Core Classes

We want to see real life apprentices of Jesus who, by grace and by choice, are learning how to live in the Kingdom of God today. As you embark on The Road toward a Christ-centered life, we will be providing four core classes to help you on your journey.

Core Classes

The Bible is the great story of how God creates and saves people for Himself. Learn how to see the Gospel in both the big picture and particular passages so that we can have an effective devotional life.

3. Can We Take the Bible Seriously Today? (from Pastor Rankin Wilbourne’s sermon series, “Barriers to Belief”)
4. Genre in the Bible
5. The Storyline of the Bible
6. The Bible as the Story of Jesus
7. Bible Reading Plan

Faith Conversations

One of our core values is to equip everyone at Pacific Crossroads to “share the hope that is within them” within the natural ebb and flow of our relationships — at work, with our friends, neighbors, family, even strangers. These workshops equip you to articulate and talk about your faith with greater confidence and clarity.

Their Story – learn how to engage with others, hear their faith stories and identify how God is already working in their lives
Your Story – discover how to talk about your own faith journey
God’s Story –  learn how to articulate the basics of what it means to put faith in Jesus.
